Discussion Question 1: Your 100-bed, not-for-profit rural hospital is in the same community as a county-owned nursing home that has been struggling. After trying unsuccessfully to sell the home, the county has asked your hospital to take over its operations. It has less-than-stellar reputation: only half of its 50 beds are full. The nearest nursing home is 70 miles away. If your hospital doesn’t take it over, the nursing home will close. But if you can’t turn around its reputation in 12 months, it will jeopardize the hospital’s thin margin. What do you do?
